Craft Blades

craft blades for miniature kite making

Craft blades, snap blades, x-acto knives and razor blades are for the most part interchangeable. Use the one that you are most comfortable with. Some sail materials will cut easier with a blade than with scissors. Old-fashioned double-edged razor blades (the kind used in your grandfathers razor) are sharper then craft blades and work best for cutting thin Mylars, films and plastic wrap.

Tip of the week
Alligator clip tabletop picture holders make a simple helping hand to hold your kite while working.  Put a small piece of folded tag board or heavy paper over the edge of the kite where it slips into the clip to make sure the alligator teeth don't hurt your sail.
